This Alternative to Bulky Baby Seats Is Also Good for Baby’s Hips

Babies want to be held all the time. While you may love the snuggles, you’re human—which means you need the occasional baby-free moment. But, what do you do if your Velcro baby prefers your arms and your arms only? When you can’t use a carrier and you need more portability than a swing, enter a lightweight floor seat. If your little one can hold their head up, this Skip Hop Silver Lining Cloud Floor Seat for beginning sitters isn’t just cute, it supports baby’s posture and entertains them, too. Dad of 3, Daniel, scoped it out for you in the video review above.

What the Silver Lining Cloud Floor Seat Does

Simply put, this sleek and streamlined seat holds your baby, but it does it in an ergonomic, development-friendly way without loud sounds, music, or flashing lights. Babies up to 25 pounds (about the size of an average 20-month-old) can safely sit in this seat. Here are a few other benefits: Silver Lining Cloud floor seat image 1

Easy In and Out

Some other baby seats are more bulky and hold babies legs and hips in place, while the Skip Hop Silver Lining Cloud has an open design.This means it’s easier to get baby into and out of. It also positions your little one in a way that encourages freedom of movement, so those little arms and legs can wave and kick freely. But, safety first, so they’re also snug and secured by the 3-point harness—and their head and neck are padded with support.

Ways to Play

Once baby is in the seat, they can play with the multi-sensory, detachable toy attachment. There’s a mirror, a spinner rattle, and a bead mover; so if baby wants to do more than hang out, they can play. And, their little legs and feet will be stimulated by the super soft fabric foot pad on the bottom of the seat. Speaking of soft fabric, the cover is machine washable.

Travel Friendly

Because all the things you have to do aren’t in the same place, you can easily pick up this lightweight seat and move it from room to room. Because there’s no power, lights or sounds, you don’t have to worry about remembering to bring batteries or cords. And, folding it up makes it simple to pack for travel, whether heading to Grandma’s or out on a road trip.

Why You’d Want the Silver Lining Cloud Floor Seat

While we all adore the feeling of baby’s soft cheek pressed against ours, sometimes you have to get things done without your infant sidekick. A portable seat that’s both dependable and lightweight will help you take a hands-free moment while you tackle a sinkful of dishes or simply, you know, breathe. And, it matches the rest of the adorable Skip Hop Silver Lining Cloud line, like the darling activity gym or Cloud Feelings Shape Sorter.
